Fresh Thyme Farmers Market

UPDATE: This giveaway is now closed. Congrats Karen C.!

Growing up on the south side of Indy, I became friends with a girl in high school whose parents purchased a corner lot of a vacated gas station and turned it into a fresh produce stand. That was 25 years ago (oy), and the last time I was down there, it was still going strong.

At the time, I didn’t know a thing about organic produce, all-natural this and gluten-free that. But today? I’m getting schooled. And when you have such great resources available these days to learn more, you have no reason not to take an interest in your health, the environment and the future.

Healthy grocery stores have made a boom in the Midwest in the last 10 years, and the latest to enter the market, Fresh Thyme, is up against some competition for sure. It is the first natural & organic store of its kind to the area, and Indy southsiders have been begging for an alternative to big box retailers for their organics.

Fresh Thyme Greenwood

Fresh Thyme opened their second store (the first in Mount Prospect, IL) south of Indianapolis in Greenwood, and looks very promising to be an affordable farmer’s market with the look and feel of a grocery store. Or is it a grocery store with the look and feel of a farmer’s market? You decide.

With fresh fruits & vegetables comprising 30% of their sales, it’s no wonder their produce section looks like this:

Fresh Thyme Greenwood… with every stalk, every nectarine, every green bean hand-inspected and hand-stacked.

Fresh Thyme GreenwoodThis attention to detail makes the entire produce department catch your eye as soon as you walk in the store. Ok, and I was seriously almost afraid to touch anything for fear of a truckload of fruit toppling down on me.

While they currently only have a small offering of local foods, that is a goal they’re hoping to increase as they add more stores. Speaking of adding more stores – take note, they have a plan to open 60 stores in the Midwest over the next 5 years, the next on the northside of Indy on 82nd Street.

Here are a few more helpful hints before you visit Fresh Thyme for the first time, and read on for a $50 Fresh Thyme gift card giveaway!
